The semester break at Vienna’s schools will soon come to an end. Students are called upon to take a PCR test as early as this weekend to avoid any nasty surprises on Monday.

One wants to make the start of school after the semester break as easy and safe as possible, it says in an appeal by Education City Councilor Christoph Wiederkehr (NEOS): “Y request goes out to all students and their parents that the children already tested negative come to school on Monday.” Wiederkehr appeals to everyone to take a test via “Alles gurgelt.”

According to the education councilor, the omicron wave is also likely to peak in the education sector, which points to the infection figures in the weeks leading up to the vacations. Wiederkehr is convinced that “school life will soon return to normal.

Mask obligation at elementary schools falls
As early as Monday, coronavirus rules in schools will again be relaxed, and sports groups can once again be run on a class-wide basis. Thus, the mask obligation at the seat will be dropped at elementary schools. However, the corresponding decree of the Ministry of Education is not yet available. Since last Monday (February 7), gymnastics without mouth-nose protection or FFP2 masks have been allowed again at all schools.

Otherwise, everything remains usual: Classes are closed starting from two positive cases. Tests for the coronavirus are carried out three times a week, at least two of which are PCR tests – now also outside Vienna. And school events are still not allowed to take place. However, they could soon be allowed in the next relaxation step, according to a statement from the Education City Council office to Radio Wien.
